Who We Are

We’re Brittany and Steven, and we’ve been living, learning, and exploring together for over 7 years. We love fishing, hiking, biking, archery, and spending time with our two dogs, Juno and Koda.

We met when we were teenagers and have been in love ever since. We’ve decided to spend our “adulthood” living small and figured the best way to do so is by building our home out of a converted school bus. This blog is a way for us to capture our adventures, struggles, and stories and share it with our readers.

Why We’re Building a Skoolie

There are a ton of reasons why we’ve decided to live tiny. For financial independence. To pay off student loans. To travel more. To leave a smaller footprint. To spend more time outside. To build something with our own hands. To have a wonderful story to tell our grandchildren.

Our realization is life is so short. By living small, we can afford to travel out of the country. We can travel the U.S and explore our beautiful country. We can spend time doing what we love. We can LIVE.

Our Furr-Babies

Joining us on our adventure will be our two Australian Shepherds, Juno and Koda. Juno (the black tri) is 5 and Koda (the red merle) is 3. They mean the world to us and we’re excited to spend more time outdoors with them.
